I had no background of this beer whatsoever, yet I decided to try a pint of it anyways. After all, it's made by Firestone Walker. On to the beer:
I spend the entire pint trying to understand what this was. There isn't much head, retention, or lace to this one. The nose is weak and offrers some strange fruity notes. And its taste is more of the same. If anything, it tasted like a weak pale ale where the hops weren't worked as much as they could. At least it was easy enough to drink, not terribly offensive, and was bubbly in the mouth. As far as everything else, I'll pass. It's a good thing this is brewed for the local Central Coast market, because I don't think it's necessary to inflict this beer on the people in my area (Orange County).
Serving type: on-tap
